Link Earned Skills to Meaningful Outcomes

API’s Career Credentials enable employers to see exactly how you’ve earned a skill and the evidence you have of applying that skill in an experiential context. A credential is not just an image- it’s tied to metadata and a learning artifact that demonstrates the outcome of a skill. Employers value job candidates and employees who can link their skills to meaningful outcomes and articulate how that outcome contributes to the overall success of the business.
